PREFACE. 



The manuscript from which the following records are copied, 
is marked on the inside of the cover, " The third Book of 
Records of Deeds &c in the County of Yorke." The inscrip- 
tion is in the handwriting of Edward Rish worth, who was 
recorder during the entire period while the book was in use, 
from July 12, 1676, to Jan. 29, 1684. The volume is well pre- 
served, though some of the pages are worn. The folio number 
75 was accidentally omitted in numbering the leaves, but no part 
of the record is missing. The marginal notes by Joseph Ham- 
mond, giving the names of grantors and grantees, end at folio 
46. Hammond, who was recorder from 1695 until 1710, made 
these notes to facilitate his examination of the records, which 
had often been duplicated in the early volumes. He became satis- 
isfied at this point, it appears, that a better method was needed, 
and so changed his plan and constructed the brief indexes which 
served the same purpose. m Hammond himself makes two records 
in this book, both supplementary to documents recorded by 
Rish worth — in 1698, John Archdale's acknowledgment of a 
grant made by him in 1665, as agent for the younger Gorges ; 
and in 1702, the testimony of a witness to a deed executed in 
1680. 1 In both cases he signs as register instead of recorder. 
The title was changed in 1697. The words recorder and clerk 
are used as equivalents in the colonial laws of Massachusetts, 
and this usage continued under the provincial charter until 1697, 
when it was provided by law that the clerk of the inferior court 
of pleas in each county should also be " the register of deeds and 
conveyances." In 1715 the register was made an independent 
officer, to be elected for a term of five years by the freeholders of 
his county. 2 

Two important public events mark the eight years from 1676 
to 1684 — first, the Indian war known as King Philip's war;

and second, the sale of Maine to Massachusetts and the subse- 
quent reorganization of the provincial government. 

The first Indian war began, in Maine, in September, 1675, and 
ended with the peace concluded at Casco, April 12, 1678. Many 
traces of the struggle remain among these records of peaceful 
buying and selling. 

Under the laws of Massachusetts, a committee of militia was 
appointed in each town to provide for the general safety, and 
every man above the age of sixteen, unless disabled or otherwise 
exempt, was enrolled for military service. The committee was 
also authorized, on receiving proper instructions, to impress as 
many men as might be needed, for expeditions against the 
enemy. 1 Francis Small and John Tomson relate in this volume, 
that they were impressed to hunt Indians in the Ossipee country, 
in 1676, and Tomson describes a memorable scene. He was 
sitting at breakfast, he says, with his comrade, Tristram Harris, 
up in the woods above Salmon Falls, and took occasion to ask 
what would become of Harris's estate, in case he should be 
taken off. Harris, being a solitary man, without wife or family, 
answered that he intended his estate for William Smyth's 
children, whenever he should be taken out of this life, which 
happened not long afterward. 2 

In August, 1676, the Indians burned Hammond's fort at 
Nequasset, and Clarke and Lake's fort at Arrowsic. Hammond 
and Lake were both killed, and the settlers on the Kennebec, 
taking warning by their fate, fled to the westward. A month 
later James Middleton, having arrived at the Great Island (now 
Newcastle) in Piscataqua river, sold the tract on the Kennebec 
called Small Point, to William Gowen of Kittery. 8 Edward 
Camers, who had been living on Purchase's island, in the 
Kennebec river, just below Merrymeeting bay, and opposite to 
Hammond's fort, sold the property to Samuel Lynde of Boston, 
whose name it still bears. 4 

Major William Phillips retreated from Saco to Boston, and 
never returned. Major Phillips was the successor to the Vines 
patent on the right bank of the Saco river, and had procured 
from Mogghegon, the sagamore of the Saco, a grant of the terri-

* Infra, fol. 80. The description, "lying with the Widow Elizabeth Hammond's lands 
easterly," shows conclusively that Hammond's fort was not on Arrowsic, as stated by 
Sullivan (Maine, 173) and others, but at Nequasset, now Woolwich. The island is called 
" Lines " island on a recent map (Colby's Atlas of Maine, 69), but that is evidently a mis- 
take for " Lynde' s."

tory between the Kennebunk and Saco rivers, as far inland as 
Salmon Falls on the Saco ; from another sagamore a grant 
extending his possessions on the Saco up to the Little Ossipee 
river; and from Fluellen, sagamore of Cape Porpoise (now 
Mousam) river, a tract extending from the upper line of Wells 
to Berwick on the west, and to the Little Ossipee on the north 
excepting the township (now Lyman) previously sold by Fluellen, 
and acquired by Harlakenden Symonds. These Indian deeds 
covered the towns now known as Sanford, Alfred, Waterborough, 
Hollis, Dayton, Biddeford, and Kennebunkport ; they were con- 
firmed by the younger Gorges in 1670 ; but the rights of settlers 
prevailed against the Indian titles, and indeed were recognized 
by Phillips himself. 

In June, 1676, Major Phillips conveyed to his sons Samuel and 
William Phillips, his sons-in-law John Alden and Robert Lord, 
and to Edward Sprague of London, with whom he had business 
dealings, the southwest half of the township of Cape Porpoise, 
between Batson's river and Kennebunk river. 1 The claims of 
these grantees lay dormant for more than half a century. For a 
long time, during the Indian wars, the town was deserted, but 
was reincorporated in 1719 and named Arundel. 2 In 1731, the 
Phillips claim was revived, but was easily and finally defeated. 

Three days after making the conveyance just described, Major 
Phillips conveyed nineteen thousand acres to nineteen persons, 
in a tract laid out for a township eight miles square, above Wells, 
and southwest of Coxhall, now Lyman.' This was the beginning 
of the town of Sanford. The grantees were two sons and five 
daughters of Major Phillips by his wife Bridget, her four children 
by a former marriage with John Sanford, two sons-in-law, and six 
others. They were to take up a thousand acres apiece in the 
most convenient place for settling a town, as a majority of them 
should direct, but without detriment to the rights of former resi- 
dents, if any should return to their abandoned dwellings within 
seven yeari. Their joint holdings amounted to nearly half of the 
township. The remainder passed by Mrs. Phillips's will in 1698, 
to Peleg Sanford, her eldest son by her former marriage. 4 In 
1734, or about that time, the proprietors under these titles organ- 
ized a plantation called Phillipstown, which in 1768 became the 
town of Sanford.

On the 25th of September, 1676, the settlement at Cape Ned- 
dick, in York, was destroyed by the savages, and about forty 
persons were slain or carried away into captivity. It was here 
that Peter Weare lived, but he and his family escaped. He sold 
a portion of his lands near Cape Neddick in 1683, 1 but still re- 
tained about two hundred acres at the time of his death in 1692. 
He was "lately deceased " Nov. 1, 1692, when his widow filed an 
inventory of his estate, valued at £23 1. 3 

Mrs. Ann Godfrey accuses Weare of negligence while he was 
recorder. 3 She says she directed him to record her deed convey- 
ing two acres of marsh, a part of her farm in York, to William 
Moore ; but learning that no record of the transaction was made, 
she is compelled to execute a new conveyance to perfect Moore's 
title. The history of the farm is interesting. It was originally 
a tract of twenty acres, between York river and Braveboat 
harbor, granted to George Burdett, who was minister at Agamen- 
ticus from 1636 until 1640. 4 In 1640 Mrs. Godfrey, then Mrs. 
Ann Messant, was Burdett's housekeeper, and on the 18th of 
March, he borrowed from her £112, giving security on six steers, 
three cows and his farm, for repayment by the last of March, 
1641. 5 But on the 8th of the next September, Burdett was in- 
dicted "for a man of ill name and fame, infamous for incon- 
tinency," and heavily fined for his misdemeanors. 5 He was a 
ruined man, and his housekeeper became anxious about her 
money. Burdett gave her what purported to be a deed of the 
farm, but when she showed the document to Richard Vines, he 
discovered that the minister had neither dated nor signed it. 
Thereupon Mrs. Messant again importuned her slippery debtor, 
and he, in haste to be gone, finally authorized Edward Johnson, 
as his attorney, to deliver legal possession of the land to her. 7 
Edward Godfrey was one of the magistrates who tried Burdett, 
and the fact that he afterward married Mrs. Messant, shows that 
her reputation did not suffer by reason of her residence with the 
profligate clergyman. After Godfrey's departure for England, in 
1655, she continued to reside on her farm, which she finally con- 
veyed in 1667, being then again a widow, to her daughter Alice, 
wife of Nicholas Shapleigh, receiving in return Shapleigh's bond 
for an annuity of £20 during her life. 8

Preface. 9 

The war ended in April, 1678, but a month before, on the 13th 
of March, Ferdinando Gorges had conveyed the province of 
Maine to John Usher, the agent of Massachusetts, who in turn 
executed a conveyance to the governor and company of Massa- 
chusetts Bay. 1 The two indentures were read to the general 
court of Massachusetts on the 2d of October, 1678, and were then 
delivered to the secretary, in a black box, for safe keeping. On 
the same day, the court desired the governor and council to take 
order for the government and disposal of the province, by sale or 
otherwise. 3 It was known that the King was much displeased by 
the purchase of Maine. It was known also that the crown 
lawyers had reported in May, that the misdemeanors of the 
Massachusetts company were sufficient to vacate their charter. 
The authority to sell the province, was probably intended to 
sanction a conveyance to the king, if in the judgment of the 
governor and council that step should become necessary. 

In May, 1679, magistrates were appointed for York county as 
usual. 8 It was not until Feb. 4, 1680, that the general court 
took courage to reconstruct the government of the province and 
requested and empowered the council to appoint a president, 
justices of the peace, and other officers required by the Gorges 
patent. 4 The council thereupon appointed Thomas Danforth 
president, with eight resident justices — Bryan Pendleton, Charles 
Frost, Francis Hooke, John Davis, Joshua Scottow, Samuel 
Wheelwright, John Wincoll, and Edward Rishworth. Assistants 
Samuel Nowell and Nathaniel Saltonstall were appointed com- 
missioners to aid President Danforth in settling the new govern- 
ment, which was inaugurated at York, March 17, 1680. 5 Pendle- 
ton was appointed deputy president, Hooke treasurer of the 
province, Frost commandant of the militia, and Rishworth sec- 
retary and recorder. The justices constituted a provincial council, 
and a general assembly was composed of the president and

and Williamson (1 Maine, 461), both give the year 1677, but the correct date is March 13, 
1G77-8. Gorges, in this conveyance, expressly reserves the Indian grants confirmed, or 
supposed to be confirmed, to Major Phillips in ItiTO, in favor of Nathaniel Phillips, the 
Major's son, by his second wife, Susanna Stanley, Bridget Sanford's predecessor. 
Nathaniel was a merchant of Boston, whose business took him to England from time to 
time, and it would appear that he had procured this confirmation in his own name in- 
stead of his father's. Compare 2 York Deeds, 169, 174, and fol. 3 infra.

•Williamson (1 Maine, 563) appears to be in doubt about this date. It i« confirmed, 
however, by Hutchinson, who says ( 1 Mass. 296) Danforth repaired to Maine " towards 
the end of 1679," (t. e., 1679-80), and conclusively by the signatures of Francis Hooke, 
March 24, 1680, and Edward Rishworth, March 31, 1680, as " justices of the peace." See 
fol. 64, infra.

council with deputies elected by the towns. The deputy presi- 
dent, with the assistance of other justices, was empowered to hold 
courts from which an appeal lay to the president in council. The 
report of President Danforth and the other gentlemen employed 
in settling the government, was received at Boston on the 11th 
of June, 1680, and approved. 1 

The eastern settlements in Maine had been abandoned during 
the Indian war, but the inhabitants were now returning to their 
ruined homes. At the first general assembly, held at York, March 
30, 1680, the towns of Cape Porpoise, Scarborough and Fal- 
mouth were not represented, though Walter Gendall appeared 
for Falmouth, but having no certificate of election, could not 
take his seat. 2 In September, President Danforth with his asso- 
ciates, Messrs. No well and Saltonstall, visited Falmouth and held 
a court there. On this occasion he made proclamation, that a 
new plantation, to be established on the northerly shore of Casco 
bay, should be named North Yarmouth. 8 It is said that Sir 
Ferdinando Gorges had granted a township between the Wes- 
custogo (now Roy all's) river and the mouth of the Bunganoc in 
Maquoit bay; 4 but no municipal government had been set up 
there. On the contrary, John Redding recites, in a deed recorded 
in this volume, 6 that he derived his title to a tract on the Harra- 
seket river from a grant by the selectmen of Casco Bay, and 
names as one of the selectmen when the grant was made, Richard 
Bray, who bought half of Cousins island in 1651. 6 But Casco 
Bay, before 1658, was the name of the plantation which after- 
ward became Falmouth, 7 and the northeastern boundary of 
Falmouth was the famous " Massachusetts line," which cut off, it 
appears, a considerable part of the territory belonging to Casco 
or Casco Bay, while George Cleve was agent there for Gorges, 
and afterward for Rigby. Falmouth having now been re-organ- 
ized, there was a desire for a new township beyond, and the 
general court at Boston, on the 11th of June, 1680, granted a 
township five miles square, on the east side of the Wescustogo

Danforth, that John Bray received the order on the provincial treasurer for £8, acknowl- 
edged on fol. 103, infra.

river, and two islands adjacent (probably Cousins and Little- 
john's), on condition that twenty or thirty families, and an able 
minister, should be settled there within two years. 1 This was the 
town which President Danforth named North Yarmouth. He 
also added thereto the waste lands lying between the grant of 
the general court and the town of Falmouth, and an island called 
New Damariscove, now Haskell's island, near the southeastern 
point of Harpswell Neck. 2 

On the 19th of October, 1680, the President wrote from Boston 
to Deputy President Pendleton, or Justice John Davis, at York, 
directing them, or either of them, to summon a court to hear a 
complaint by Edward Randolph against one Nicolls, master of a 
ketch which had been seized in Maine for trading contrary to the 
acts of trade. 8 Randolph had arrived in this country in 
December, 1679, commissioned as collector, surveyor and searcher 
for New England, to see that these odious laws were enforced. 
The navigation laws at that time prohibited any colonial com- 
merce, save with English ports and in English vessels. Duties 
were required even on certain commodities carried from one 
plantation to another, 4 and the complaint against Nicolls was 
probably for neglect of this requirement. But the whole popu- 
lation resented these proceedings, and the juries quite regularly 
found against the " searcher." President Danforth therefore 
prudently ordered that Mr. Randolph, on exhibiting his libel, 
should deposit £10 to cover costs of court, the remainder, if any, 
to be returned to the prosecutor after the trial. 

On the 11th of May, 1681, Danforth was re-appointed, and was 
formally authorized to confirm, under his official seal and signa- 
ture, the rightful possessions of landholders in Maine. 6 The rule 
governing contested cases was laid down by the general court in 
1674; the "eldest grant" was to be confirmed. New grants 
were to be made by the general court and certified by the presi- 
dent. An illustration of this practice is found in the grant 
recorded in this volume, 7 of sixty acres apiece and a mill privi-

lege to George and John Ingersoll of Falmouth. This was in 
1682. Massachusetts had agreed in October, 1681, that all 
streams and mill-sites in Maine should be exempt from rent, leav- 
ing this source of revenue to the province, which soon after- 
ward laid a tax upon mills to provide for the maintenance of a 
garrison at Fort Loyal. It must be understood, therefore, that 
the rent of £5 a year required of the Ingersolls by Danforth, is 
not for the mill-site but for the privilege of cutting timber any- 
where above the proposed saw mill. 

In 1682 the general court granted Merriconeag Neck to Har- 
vard college, and in 1684 the island of Sebascodegan was be- 
stowed upon President Danforth and Commissioner Nowell, as 
full recompense for their service in settling the government of 
Maine ; but neither grant took effect. Both tracts had been 
bought from the Indians by Nicholas Shapleigh in 1659 or 1660, 
and his heir, John Shapleigh, sold them in 1683 to Richard 
Wharton, through whom the title passed to the Pejepscot com- 
pany. 1 In Shapleigh's conveyance, the name Pejepscot appears 
for the first time in this series of records. The head of Merricon- 
eag Neck is bounded, Shapleigh says, by " the plains of 
Pejepscot." 2 

The Massachusetts charter was annulled June 18, 1684 ; but 
Danforth's administration in Maine continued until May, 1686, 
when Joseph Dudley received his commission from King James 
II, and assumed the government of Maine, New Hampshire, 
Massachusetts, and the King's Province in the Narraganset 
country. 

In a conveyance made in 1643 by Governor Thomas Gorges, 
and recorded in this volume, we find Saco described as "in 
the county of Surrey." Three of the names which Sir Fer- 
dinando Gorges bestowed upon the eight bailiwicks or counties 
into which he divided his province, have now been discovered 
— Devon, Somerset and Surrey.* 

Two conveyances by John Archdale, in October, 1665, show 
that he tarried in Maine after the Gorges government was dis- 
solved, in June of that year, by the royal commissioners; and 
that he continued to act as the proprietor's agent in disposing of 
the lands. 4

In 1666, Thomas Mayhew, of Martin's Vineyard, sold one of the 
Elizabeth islands, on the Plymouth coast, to Peter Oliver of 
Boston. In 1682 the conveyance was recorded in Maine. This 
appears to have been done because the grantor was in fact a 
citizen of Maine, Martin's (or Martha's) Vineyard being the •' isle 
of Capawock, near Cape Cod," conveyed to Sir Ferdiuando Gorges 
by the royal charter of 1639. 1 

The upper division of the town of Kittery, previously the 
parish of Unity, becomes in this volume the parish of Berwick, 
and sometimes the town of Berwick, though the town was not in- 
corporated under that name until 1713. The name Berwick first 
occurs in 1681 ; a but a division of the town, for certain purposes, 
had been made ten years before. It is recorded here 8 that the 
selectmen and inhabitants of the parish of Unity, on the 13th of 
April, 1671, granted sixty acres of land to Alexander Cooper, and 
as many more to George Gray, " by virtue of a general act of the 
town, made the 24th of June last past." The general act stiil 
stands on the Kittery records, under the date, June 24, 1670 : 

Voted and concluded that y e Selectmen this day chosen as above shall 
have full power to dispose of lands in y e Severall parts of this town, 
that is to say, the Selectmen that live in upper devision of y e town when 
they Intend to grant any land shall give Legall Notice to y e Inhabitants 
of that part of y e town, both of y e time and place of their meeting to 
y e purpose that soe who please to se what grants are made may be 
present, and what grants are soe made by y e sd Selectmen shall stand 
firm and good, and alsoe y e Selectmen that live in the lower Devision of 
y e town have the same power of granting lands for granting land there, 
giving like Notice to y* Inhabitants of that part of y e town. 4 

This explains the confirmation by "the selectmen of the town 
of Berwick, alias Newgewanac," 6 in 1683, of the grants of the 
town of Kittery to Richard and George Leader, and to their 
successors, Richard, Eliakim and William Hutchinson, for the 
accommodation of their saw mills on the Asabumbeduc river. 
The old Leader mill, blacksmith's shop and other property there, 
were appraised in 1669 at £493. 8 In 1679 the Hutchinson mill

Laws of Mass. Bay. Province Laws, c. 5), it is ordained that sessions of the peace shall be 
held " upon the Island of Capawock, alias Martha's Vineyard," and on the island of Nan- 
tucket, which is doubtless the "isle of Nautican," also granted to Gorges in the charter 
of 1639. See Macy's Nantucket, 4, where it appears that Thomas Mayhew, senior, acquired 
his title to Nantucket from Richard Vines, steward to Sir Ferdiuando Gorges.

was known as the " great works saw mill," and the stream is now

The Indian grant to Thomas Webber and John Parker's sub- 
sequent conveyance to his sister, Mary Webber, are the titles 
under which a large part of the town of Phipsburg is now held. 
They are recorded in this volume.
